In short: great run and great organisation In full: excellent introduction to off-road running with majority of race held over wide gravel forest trails with a few undulations but no major hills (though the loop at mile 8 felt like it).
In short: Another great race this year In full: A great day and an enjoyable race again. My highlight was the highland cow that was stood watching the race towards the start. The race feels like a real family event. Well done to the organisers. Date of review: July 12, 2011
In short: A Glorious way to spend a Sunday In full: Can't fault it in any way. It would have been nice not to race it and enjoy the scenery a bit more but where's the fun in that! Wild horses everywhere and a deer ran out just in front of me at one point.
I unfortunately couldn't thank the Marshalls on the way round as I was just trying to breathe but they were fab.
Beginners - The only reason I didn't give this full marks is because it's 10 miles but if you want a race to aim for then make sure you enter this next year. Date of review: July 12, 2011
In short: One of my all time favourite races. In full: Everything about this race is pretty much perfect and I'll keep coming back every year. Thanks very much to all those who makes this a great success from the car park helpers to the on-course marshals. This year I got a PB for 10 miles as well - bonus! Date of review: July 12, 2011
In short: My favourite race In full: Well done marshals on all counts. Brilliant race this. Drinks stations well positioned. Although strength sapping and finish line a welcome sight I always get a buzz at the end, and this year a PB for NF10. It must be an optical elusion, but I find that the gentle downhill sections seem longer and occur more frequently than the modest uphill challenges. Date of review: July 11, 2011
